About Andrea

We are retired from the Philadelphia area and now live in on James Island in Charleston.. Along with our daughter (Charleston school teacher) we looked and found 9 23rd Avenue - we hope to make it a great vacation spot for multiple families and friends for years to come.

Andrea purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrea chose Charleston Area

We recently sold our beach house at the Jersey shore. We looked at numerous locations in Charleston - when we saw this home on Isle of Palms, we knew we had found the best of the bunch.

What makes this house unique

The house is surrounded by live oaks and palm trees. Besides being close to the beach, there is a park with basketball, tennis, playground just a quick bike ride away. The house is surrounded by lovely homes in a quiet and convenient area close to little town area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an extended family vacation/reunion. We came from Manhattan Beach, CA; Fort Wayne, IN; and Charlotte, NC. We had 12 people and we had plenty of space. We loved the house. The bedrooms were wonderful. We used the pool everyday. The ocean is so close and we enjoyed it daily. We made many trips into Charleston. We enjoyed so many wonderful restaurants. We took a haunted tour and a carriage ride. It was the best of two worlds - a beach vacation and a historic city vacation. Great food, great shopping, biking, swimming, paddle boarding. We had a great time.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

There are reasons that this property has gotten such great reviews. First of all, Andrea was just great to work with. As mentioned in another review, she makes you truly feel like you are a guest in their home, not just a renter. She answered any questions I had very promptly, and provided a lot of great information about the home and things to do in the area. The home is beautiful and includes amenities that most other rentals do not- cleaning supplies, most any cooking utensil you can think of, including spices, and even bikes and beach gear. Everything was clean and comfortable. The pool area and the rooftop deck were great places for my friends and I to re-connect and reminisce. I would highly recommend this property, and will most likely return next year. I rent frequently through VRBO, and this was the best experience I've ever had, mostly due to Andrea and Rowland's thoughtfulness and hospitality.

Fantastic Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

Went down with my best girlfriends and left the husbands at home. What a blast! From the heated pool, great location, gorgeous house that was stocked, steps from the beach it was heaven. Just wonderful to work with and house was even better than the photos and description. We will hopefully be back again and maybe this time with the husbands. :-) A special place for sure!

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Avalon by the Sea over spring break (March). It's a super comfortable, clean, roomy house that was more than enough space for our family of six. Cooler than normal weather kept us from enjoying the pool, but walks on the beach (just a block away,), sight-seeing and dining in Charleston and movie-nights together on the large family room TV provided us with a fun-filled week. Andrea and Rowland were gracious and prompt with our reservation and answering any questions we had. We loved that the house came equipped with all the essentials; we didn't have to bring a thing (towels, trash bags, spices, etc). Thank you - looking forward to our next visit!

Perfect home for our wedding week!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Avalon by the Sea! Hope we will be able to visit again. It was a delightful week for our daughter's wedding and the home served as our central location. Everything was provided that we needed and the home was clean and beautiful. I can not wait to see the photos of the bride and bridesmaids on the rooftop deck!

It was easy to entertain there, the grandchildren loved the pool and the beach was a very close walk. I can not imagine any other home meeting our needs any better!

Andrea was great to work with. We would love to be able to stay in this well appointed home again.

Super Home! Perfect for a Wedding Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from the most amazing experience in IOP (Isle of Palms) for our son's wedding! Our stay at this beautiful, yet comfy home was wonderful. It accommodated our entire family - grandparents, parents, adult children, and groomsmen. Everyone had plenty of room to be together or apart. The elevator was so helpful for our grandparents who have difficulty walking up stairs. The rooftop deck has great views of ocean, very relaxing with a beverage in the afternoon. It felt was like staying a show home from HGTV, well appointed! The saddest moment was closing the front door and driving away to return home.

Great! Perfect house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation in this house. Kitchen was wonderful and fully equipped for a full Christmas dinner. Enough space for several families to live comfortably! The heated pool was a Godsend for 5 grandchildren under 11. Easy to let them swim while the adults enjoyed themselves without fear of where the children were. Would highly recommend this house.
